Biosystematics, fingerprinting and DNA barcoding study of the genus Lallemantia based on SCoT and REMAP markers
Keywords:Lallemantia, fingerprinting, ScoT, REMA, Iran
Lallemantia is a medicinally important plant in the world. Due to interspecific hybridization and horizontal gene transfer, spices relationship and delimitation on the genus Lallemantia is difficult based on different molecular markers. Therefore, selecting the appropriate marker can be important. Fingerprinting techniques continue to be used for genomic profiling for the characterization of germplasm and the establishment of the identity of varieties/hybrids/parental sources of aromatic and medicinal plants. For this, we need to produce detailed information on genetic diversity available in Lallemantia as well as investigate spices relationship and delimitation. Therefore, the present study was performed on Lallemantia species in Iran. We used the start codon targeted and retrotransposon-microsatellite amplified polymorphism molecular marker for our genetic investigation with the following aims: 1- To reveal the species delimitation and species relationship in Lallemantia, and 2- To investigate discriminating power of the start codon targeted and retrotransposon-microsatellite amplified polymorphism markers by Gst and NM analysis. The results obtained revealed that the start codon targeted marker is the best to show the relationships between species while the retrotransposon-microsatellite amplified polymorphism marker is the best for species delimitation. we found the loci with the high value of Gst (1.00) in start codon targeted and retrotransposon-microsatellite amplified polymorphism markers that can be used in barcoding and fingerprinting of L. royleana.
